Pharmaceutical liquids, ointments, creams, sachets and powders
The acquisition of Pinewood Healthcare in Southern Ireland has expanded Wockhardt’s production capabilities for non beta-lactam sachets and powders (non-penicillin powders), oral liquids and suspensions, creams and ointments.
Established in 1976, Pinewood employs 350-400 people and has exported products worldwide for over 20 years. Pinewood offers a truly professional service to its customers and already partners with a number of multinational clients. Significant investment at the Tipperary manufacturing site has resulted in a first-class, internationally audited, state-of-the-art facility. The plant has capacity for over 50 million finished packs of product per year.
The in-house research and development division has long-standing expertise in the formulation of liquids, ointments and creams. Purpose-built warehousing and expertise in logistics and international documentation complete the picture. Through Pinewood, Wockhardt can deliver competitively priced quality products, delivered on time and backed by individual customer service.
Wockhardt also has four further sites, (two in India and two in France), with manufacturing capabilities in the powders, liquids, ointments and creams sector.
